1.4.0-build6 is available
Java 3D 1.4.0-build6 is now available on java.net:
The new picking API, including the PickInfo class, is now implemented. Shader support for samplers is also available as long as you don't use more texture units than are supported via the fixed function pipeline, and don't have any disabled texture units. Initial support for vertex attributes is available (for by-copy, non-indexed-mode only). These limitations will be fixed in the beta1 (aka build7) release.
You can also access build6 via JNLP:
